This bread from Savor Easy on Youtube is so delicious; I’ve been making this almost every day. It’s also a crowd favorite, and every time I make these, our home is filled with a wafting aroma coming from these buns. Watch the video below to learn the full recipe.




  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of fresh milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp softened butter

Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 1 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream (or all-purpose cream)

Garlic Butter:

  • 1/2 cup melted salted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 – 2 tbsp condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley


Step 1

Combine 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup fresh milk, 1 egg, and 2 tsp instant yeast in a bowl. Mix well, then add 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 tsp salt. Continue to mix until dough forms. Cover it and let it rest for ten minutes. After this, add 3 tbsp softened butter, and work on it until it fully combines into the dough. Once done, transfer it to a surface and knead (or use a slap-and-fold method) until it becomes smooth and elastic. Now, place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it, and let it rise until doubled in size. After this, punch out the gas and knead the dough for a minute to remove the air further. Shape it into a ball and divide it into eight equal pieces. Shape the pieces into small balls, place them in a parchment paper-lined baking tray, then cover for at least an hour.

Step 2

In the meantime, make the filling. In a bowl, add the cream cheese, smooth it out, and add 2 tbsp sugar. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Next, add 3 tbsp heavy cream and mix until combined. Put the cream cheese mixture in a piping bag and set it aside. In a separate bowl make the garlic butter. Combine 2 cups melted butter, 1 egg, 1 tbsp condensed milk, and 2 tbsp heavy cream. Mix well, then stir in 2 tbsp minced garlic and 1 tbsp chopped parsley. Back to the buns, once it doubles in size, brush the top with egg wash, then bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 3

After baking, cool it completely, then slice in six sides, just before the bottom. Next, fill it with the cream cheese filling, then dip it into the garlic butter sauce. Repeat these steps with the rest of the buns, then place them in a parchment paper-lined baking tray and bake for a further 15 minutes.
